President Trump weighed-in Tuesday on the ongoing controversy surrounding the mainstream media’s total meltdown while covering a viral video featuring high school students; saying the Covington teens have become the “symbol of fake news.”

“Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good – maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!” tweeted the president.
